A range of elegant accommodation
There are 32 rooms nestled into the hillside. Among these are four superior rooms which are located on the ground floor of the colonial-style main building. The 16 deluxe rooms are scattered on the hillside and gardens and are just steps away from the beach. Ten senior suites offer the utmost in comfort and luxury and two of these are interconnecting making them a good choice for family travellers. Finally, there are two family suites set on the top floor of the main building, each offering sweeping views of the hotel grounds and the bay. They are very spacious with two en-suite bedrooms, a separate lounge and verandah.
There are two restaurants at L’Archipel. La Gigolette opens its large windows and terrace right on the beach and guests can enjoy the soft breeze and the stunning ocean view while enjoying delicious international and traditional Creole cuisines with modern twists on classic dishes. La Feuille d’Or, located on the first floor by the bar, also offers a lovely panorama and a more secluded atmosphere, ideal when the weather does not allow for outdoor dining. Dining facilities are completed by the pool bar which serves cocktails and light snacks during the day
